Nigeria hints at sacking Gernot Rohr as Super Eagles coach


Gernot Rohr

The Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has said that the performance of Gernot Rohr as Super Eagles coach will soon be reappraised.

Dare said this following the Super Eagles 4-4 home draw against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone last Friday.

According to him, regardless of the outcome of the return leg of the game, Rohr’s performance will be reappraised to see if he’s capable of leading the team to their expectation.

“The task at the moment is to get the team firmly back on track towards picking one of the group’s two tickets on offer for the 2022 AFCON.

“A win in Freetown will seal a 19th participation in the African Mundial.

“After this, we can now debate Mr. Rohr’s suitability as we seek to return Nigeria to the pedestal of African football and one of the beautiful game’s powerhouses in world football.

“We will reappraise Mr. Rohr’s performance since he was named as Super Eagles manager and see if he is the right man to fulfill our expectations,” Dare said.
